Praised for their “broad expressive range” (Luciano Chessa) and “energetic gusto” (SF Examiner), Friction Quartet is the San Francisco Bay Area’s most explosive contemporary string quartet. Through artistic collaboration in varied mediums, the commissioning of new works, crossing into genres outside of classical music, and incorporating mixed media technology, Friction will create an exhilarating and inviting atmosphere that will attract audiences of all ages and interests. Mobius Trio
Described by the eminent Sergio Assad as "the most inventive and exciting young guitar ensemble today", Mobius Trio has made it its mission to fully integrate the classical guitar into the 21st century's nascent musical lexicon. The Trio exclusively performs music that they have commissioned; they seek to expand the guitar ensemble's repertoire to encompass all of the myriad currents passing through contemporary art music. Mobius Trio has commissioned over a dozen composers in their first two years of existence, and that pace isn't slowing. Recent commissions include Adrian Knight, Samuel Carl Adams, and Frank Wallace, with more pieces and collaborations on the way.
